The team spent our spring break at a house in the Pacific NW hanging out and playing lots of frisbee! Getting pumped for the NW Challenge tournament in just a few days!
Syz traveled to both coasts this winter to play at Queen City Tune Up in Charlotte, North Carolina and Presidents' Day Invite in San Diego, California. Both tournaments were a blast and the team ended with a combined 9-4 record heading into our final tournament of the winter, coming up at the end of March. Check out the photos below of our first two tournaments! (Photos courtesy of Erin Hull and Carol Ciaglo)
Syzygy just wrapped up yet another fun fall season! Early in fall term we combined with Eclipse to compete at Exit 69, a local tournament that helped introduce a lot of new Carleton women to the sport of ultimate. Later in the term, Syzygy took a small squad to Eau Claire to play in the Eau Claire Chillout and placed second after a hard fought game against the Eau Claire alumni. Most importantly, we added eight rookies to our team! They are an extremely fun, hard working group of freshmen and we can't wait to play with them more in the upcoming season!
Syzygy went to Whidbey Island for a week full of playing frisbee, spending time with teammates, cooking, watching movies, and walking on the beach before heading to Seattle to compete at the Northwest Challenge.
We're super excited to welcome eight awesomely talented new rookies to the team.

A huge thank you to all our alumni who came to campus for the scrimmage. It was a great way to get excited for tryouts. We think it might just have to become an annual tradition.
Syzygy ended the 2015 season with an incredible third place finish at Nationals. Playing in the stadium with hundreds of Syzygy alumni, parents and fans was a moment we'll never forget and we're so grateful for all the support (Here's the link to check out some photos from our semi-final game at Nationals http://goo.gl/402hGV) A special thanks to all the people who followed us on twitter, brought us food at tournaments, donated money, came out for alumni weekend and sent us words of encouragement, we couldn't have done it without you. We got the incredible opportunity to travel all over the country, playing in some of the most elite tournaments. We played some unforgettable games in North Carolina, Stanford, Seattle, Minnesota, Iowa, and Wisconsin. Here's a look back at a few of our favorite moments from the past year.
